Quan ends phenomenal year with Jr. Orange Bowl title

   Capping an incredible year, top-seeded Rudy Quan of Roseville in the Sacramento area beat Santiago Muhala of Katy, Texas, 6-1, 6-4 today to win the boys 12 title in the Junior Orange Bowl.
   The four games were the most Quan lost in a set in his seven matches in the clay-court, singles-only tournament in Coral Gables, Fla. He surrendered an average of 1.3 games per set, recording double bagels in the third round and quarterfinals.
   Quan came into the Junior Orange Bowl after suffering his only loss of the year, to eventual champion Maximus Dussault of Leesburg, Va., in the Eddie Herr semifinals on hard courts in Bradenton, Fla. It was Quan's first international competition.
   "I guess that was just a good learning experience for Orange Bowl, because I hadn't lost in a while," Quan, who won the 12s division in this year's USTA Winter Nationals, Easter Bowl, Clay Courts and Hard Courts, told Colette Lewis of ZooTennis.
